Results

BH passed the sugars test. I can't say I was worried but I am relieved it's not an issue. I took the test in the first tri because they wanted a baseline and my number came back at 110. When I took it again on Friday it came back at 117. They like seeing the number under 140.

New fun thing I discovered today: did you know dehydration can present as shortness of breath? I did not. I was sitting in my air conditioned office this morning when I noticed I was having a hard time catching my breath. I realized later that it didn't help that I was leaning forward and probably putting pressure on my middle. But when the nurse called me to talk about my glucose test results so I mentioned the breathing thing. She asked me if I was drinking enough. Obviously with this heat it's very easy to dehydrate so she advised to double up and call back if it's still an issue. So far it hasn't repeated.

I didn't think I was dehydrated - I didn't feel thirsty; didn't have dry lips, etc. But I guess it can manifest in different ways. If I was thirsty then it's probably too late. I know that dehydration can cause a lot of problems so I thought I was doing ok but apparently I need to step it up. So all this water is keeping everything moving so that's a nice side effect, but forcing it makes me a little nauseous so I found little sips instead of chugging to be more manageable.

  1. Thank you. Someone else I know, not pregnant, is having terrible problems re shortness of breath. Undiagnosed problems. I will encourage her to be careful about hydration. MAy or may not be relevant. Does live in HEAT. THANK YOU.

  2. Congrats on passing your glucose test; that’s great! I passed my first one too. I hear the second one is much worse so it’s a relief. I didn’t know that about hydration and shortness of breath either. I think for me a lot of it is because I’m short and there’s just not a lot of room in there, too. Sending good thoughts and glad to hear things are moving along well.
